So cant remember if Meg mention Sunday, so I will just go ahead and talk all about it....pretty standard. We sat in Grade 4 making some cool words to stick on the walls to help the kiddies with spellings. Then had an epic meeting at 1pm for 1 1/2 hours, as soon as I walked in a said, 'I should have gone to the loo'.....by the end I thought I was going to pass out, I litterally ran out the room! Standard day really....
Just a wee few notices to begin with....Penny sozza we forgot, but Happy birthday day to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you Penny, ahppy birthday to you. May god bless you, maygod bless you, may god bless you penny,may god bless you, how old are you now, how old are you now, how old are you now penny, how old are you now? Furthermore...Sally Dyos we wish to thank you for your christmas pressies to us, they FINALLY arrived and we greatly appreciated the christmas chocolate and decorations, they are looking good in Januray I tell you!
So Monday...had a staff meeting in the morning, just for the english peeps. There is a new volunteer called Iliya and a lady called Barbera (who helped to make Ullens and an ex headmistress) take the sessions, and we all chat about our classes! Meg made her input when asked about slang words....she chose 'snozcumber' from BFG....not quite sure where that came from! At the end of the meeting we were told that there is a course in a few weeks on a saturday, from 9am-3pm...free lunch....I think we will be attending that then! So spoke to deputy man, and we have asked to both go!
Tuesday....Meg was off on a school trip to some caves, glad I am not going as I am a bit clostraphobic! Rita teacher then told me Grade 5 were searching for me, I thought, 'Oh dear they have lost Meg'....so got in there bus to see what was needed of me when the bus suddenly took off...excuse me I dont think I am meant to be on the bus...Megs teachers say, 'But Himlal said you asked to come yesterday.'.....oh dear he as booked me into the wrong school trip! So off we both went to the caves! Sweet morning off school. Had fun by the caves, I refused to go in the caves, WAY to small a space, meg also refused....saying she didnt want to get dusty! So we were the photographers from OUTSIDE the caves!! Beautiful day, so sat in the sun...we did have to hike up billions of stairs, made our legs go wobbly wobbly....extra big bonus though was that at the end we were bought Lays and water (lays are like walkers crisps) delicious!
Wednesday....we are expecting a parcel from Mr Richard Mitchell....consisting of BRIE.....a bit worried it is sitting in the post office, we headed out to the box to see if it had arrived. Left on the school bus and found the box with no hic-ups....unfortunatly NO parcel from Mr Mitchell....BUT there was a parcel from CATHERINE CHICK....yes, yes, yes....oppened it up to find, a DVD called '9 to 5' with Dolly Parton, what a cracker, cannot wait to watch that one. So thanks Chickla!
Thursday...nothing much at all, apart from the fact that when we went to Ram store we came across a massive yellow fruit, we asked what it was and the lady said it was like a lime....so I said, it must be a lemon, Meg thought more like grapefruit....so we bought it to try....most definitely the biggest LEMON I have ever seen in my life....really sour, Meg is diggin it big time! Me not so much!! Also when we were walking back I loudly prouclaimed, 'OH MY GOD it's Cheryl Cole'....meg thought I meant she was standing on the side of the road....sorry to dissapoint but actually there is just one mahoosive poster advertising a dentist and is has her face on the side....she is not named at all, so I think they have litterally just copied the photo off google....I think its a bit illegal, cause she doesnt know her face is plastered on the street of Nepal!
Friday...cracking day. Me (Rose) I went horse riding in the the morning, and got a great ride at the end...the horse was being quite lazy, so when I passed all the men one guy said, 'here do you want the wip'...as soon as the wip was brought into view the horse went zoooom and I was off...made all the men chuckle very loudly! Then got back had lunch....yum...then about to sit down for the afternoon lessons when Himlal comes up to me and says, 'I have been looking everywhere for you, the grade 3 teacher needs your help, she is going on a trip to the Durba Square museum, they are short of satff...meg too'.....get in there sonny jim, another school trip. So we went off to this museum....Nayan came too to take photos and he just became our very own personal guide....it was beautiful!! Lots of lovely stuff, what a great day! Then a DOUBLE bonus....kid in megs classes birthday gave us a BOX of chocoalate...yes!! Perfect friday night in, watching our favourite show....The Bachelorette....TV trash as my mum would call it.
So saturday we did NOTHING all day, was amazing. But we did wash our sleeping bag for the first time in 3 months....great idea, untill that night, mine was still wet, so I was freezing cold all night! Should have snuggles into megs bed!
Sunday we had off as a public holiday, so all us 4 lady volunteers decided to do a day outing! We went to Kathmandu Durbar Square and the bead market....hippy one not nepalese one! BUT we could only find the Nepalese one much to Megs disapointment, and after making it clear how gross all the beads were, Suzzy went and bought some! Smooth meg! Then went to find the square, we rocked up and tried to sneak in but the gaurd caught us and told us we had to pay...300 RUPEES....what a joke! So we walked away...then a man came up to us and said he could take us through the alleys to another enterance....why not! So went through the alleys with Mr Alley Man and ended up (after a little nerve racking alley walk) actually at the otherside, all free of charge. Lets try again then....walk into the square, had a mooch around for about 3mins then.......MR GAURD FINDS US....oh dear!! He tell us off, and we act very dumb...'Oh we didnt realise we were actually in the square, we were just trying to walk through to the other side'....along with, 'Oh I am so sorry, we thought that the suare was in that biulding, are we infact in the square right now?'....after the gaurd has a few words in his walky talky, we are all feeling a little nervius at this point.....he decideds we can infact walk through to the otherside, but only with him escorting us the WHOLE way out of the complex! Very embaressing, we all looked right dodgy!! Made it out in one peice and managed to see a small amount of the square for free....we are skilled at getting free things!!
Meg managed to find a fleece, thank goodnes! No longer will I have to put up with, 'I am soooo cold'. Oh yeah Meg news update....all week Meg has had headaches, which hasnt been nice and also, I would like to say that after Meg giving me a lot of jip about how I must have a weak stomache cause I have been sick twice....Meg is Mrs Diarrhea....not such a stronge stomache now Meg...Oh yes, meg nearly blew up the apartment on Saturday during her shower, the thing set alight....I dont know how she does it! But I managed to calm the situation and send her back into the shower to actually turn off the shower....no expolsions, but we are not fans of gas showers...Meg is dangerous with them!!
So that is that....oh dear, we came back on sunday to watch the end of the tennis (lets not talk about that) and to watch the FINAL of The Bachelorette....when the gaurds tell us, there is no more oil for the generator, so we have NO power all night. BUMMER.....but, the most exciting of all.....they have asked us to go to supper (again) after the first failed attempt. But this time they actually asked us themselves....so hopefully over the next few weeks we will have a date with them....cannot wait!!
So yeah....thats all!! Meegan Runny Bum.....
